This card that jumped out for me on Saturday 9th June, has been so true for me. Nursing Den at home has not been easy. Den is not the easiest patient and going through this surgery has been even worse. I have always been the one to be there and to give someone a cuddle when they needed a good cry but it was only on Thursday 7th June that I was to receive this – from a complete stranger.
Den’s face had been getting progressively worse, so much so that the swelling had burst and he had to attend an emergency appointment at 8.30 am with the Professor at Dorchester hospital. We got there early as we had not been to the hospital before and because of that, decided that we would have breakfast there. I thought I had taken all Den’s medication with me but forgot the needles for the insulin pen. Den over-reacted and I ended up going from Day surgery to Maxillofacial and then being told that Ilminster ward (think that’s the name) might have some needles. By this time it was 7.45 am and I had still not found the ward. I was starting to get really anxious because the hospital was unfamiliar and I really didn’t know where I was going. Then suddenly I saw this nurse in a white uniform and asked her where I could find the ward. With that, I just burst into tears. The nurse was so kind and actually took me to the ward where there was a doctor and a sister who got the needles for me. The nurse was soooo kind. She went over and above the call of duty and walked me back to the restaurant. She really was a Goddess to me! As we parted, I gave her such a hug and thanked her, but forgot to ask her name.
The significance of this card is that I ended up sharing my feelings with a complete stranger and she was there to listen, allow me to cry, to get things off my chest and to give me a hug. She was there at the right time, when I needed help.
“This card means that you have been holding some feelings inside and need to let them out. When you talk or write about your feelings, you understand them better. Sometimes you dont know how you feel until you begin talking. Its not healthy to hold in your emotions especially anger or sadness. Find a trusted person who will listen to you, such as a friend, family member or teacher. Let that person know that you need to talk and tell them what you need. For instance, if you want them to listen without giving you advice, then let them know. If you want them to comfort you, then let them know. If you dont have somone to talk to or your feelings are so private that you dont want to share them out loud, then you can write about them. You can also silently talk to your angels or the unicorns. They will listen to you with love and help you feel better and find answers”.
And thank you Sarah for being there for me yesterday.
Goddess does work in mysterious ways.
